tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  January 22, 2014 12:00pm-1:01pm PST

12:00 pm
page, i got my share of spankings with spoons. i think all my generation did and you know what? we didn't have school shootings. another good point. thanks for being part of the real story today. i'm gretchen carlson. shepard smith now reporting live. >> huge snowstorm with a mess across the east coast and travel problems across the country. ahead, a look at the airport misery map. plus, i'm sure you have seen the crack smoking mayor of rob ford saying he's off the wagon. he didn't have to admit it, mr. mayor. ahead, the video out for the past 26 hours and showing that proves it all. and need a billion dollars? one of the richest men on the planet ready to hand it over. you have to do something that never has ever, ever, ever, ever done and you won't do it, either. we'll have a pr pro if it's more than a publicity stunt. the answer will be no. let's get to it. first from the fox news
12:01 pm
deck, united states olympic officials confirm they received a same e-mail that put countries on alert. according to a european official, it reads in part, quote, persons attending the games might be blown up. unquote. the winter games begin in sochi, russia, in a couple of weeks. officials are saying that the message is not a credible threat. not credible. but of course, terrorists have promised to attack the games and russian security teams report they have been trying to track them down before they get the chance. jonathan hunt's on the fox news deck with us this afternoon. sounds like american officials are not taking chances with the e-mail despite they think it's bogus. >> these u.s. officials certainly at the u.s. olympic committee took it very seriously, indeed. as did officials at seven european countries who received the same or similar e-mail. they all were disturbed enough by it to report it immediately to their respective security services. now, u.s. oc ceo scott blackman
12:02 pm
sold us, quote, we have forwarded the message to the appropriate authorities. the safety and security of team usa is our top priority. now, it is the international olympic committee playing down the e-mails, worth pointing out in the context, shep, that the international olympic committee backed president putin of claiming there's no problems. they also have 300,000 unsold tickets sitting on right now. nonetheless, head of media relations at the ioc said to me in a e-mail, quote, the e-mail is one person's opinion about security and terrorism. it is not a threat from a terrorist. certainly, though, president obama himself is concerned. he got on the phone yesterday with president putin of russia and promised all possible u.s. assistance to combat any potential terrorist attack. shep? >> jonathan, thanks. security forces in israel say they busted militants
12:03 pm
talking on the internet about the possibility of blowing up the u.s. embassy in tel aviv. they say it was one of several targets the men were talking about attacking. i say talking about because our correspondent in israel reported in the last hour that this never went past the chatter stage. to call it a plan would be a real stretch. these are pictures of the three palestinian suspects according to the israeli officials working with al qaeda. again, that's according to the israelis. u.s. government said they cannot confirm the report. fox news cannot confirm the report. the government sources say they have no reason to doubt the israeli intelligence. the deep freeze is here after the monster winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on the east coast and more in philly. records broken. folks are miserable trying to dig out. we have pictures from this storm and they're right here. this looks like times square to me. i'm not 100% sure. this is backed up traffic on the east side or upper east side of
12:04 pm
manhattan. complaints of rich people on the upper east side. the mayor didn't get us to dissing the rich. actually, seems like so much traffic in the rush hour the rush hour is early and the know coming down so the plows couldn't get in around the cars. anyway, here's a bed of a pickup truck coming up here. this is a bus. that's clearly a bus. it is not in service and then another one that's next -- next bus, please. not a lot going on. pickup truck. i love the pictures. this is like the pick yours that people tweet in of the back deck, right? wind's blowing up and snow pile back deck and looks like a good of know and they go, would you look at -- here's the national news anchor doing the same damn thing. take a look at this. this is snow. philly chitchat this is from. so much snow in philadelphia, people sledding down the steps of the city's famous museum. since we are in philadelphia, this is the heart of the entire story and not mentioning it.
12:05 pm
philadelphia had more snow than they have had in like a month of sundays. nobody can remember when they had this much. it made for gridlock in the great city. and really surprised everybody because where in new york it started 11:00 in the morning, in philadelphia it started 3:30, 4:00 in the afternoon and pounded them throughout the entire rush hour. a couple of inches or more an hour. philly got disasterized as i heard a local put it. meanti meantime, forecasters say the bitter cold is not letting up any time soon. this is a map better than dixie. 48 in new orleans. they're not used to that. 0 in cleveland. 0 in chicago. the current windchills. it's 3 here in new york city. 30 down in raleigh. you can see the digits are not going to change in the northeast much in the midwest over the next few days. in fact, except for a few hours maybe on one day, we're below freezing according to rick. is that the truth, sir? >> it is the truth. stays cold for a while and it was a big storm.
12:06 pm
it was really light, fluffty snow and the wind blowing and making the drifts. this storm really kind of a coastal event, though, interior sections of the mid-atlantic and northeast and coastal stuff and look at the storm totals, though. 7 to 8.5 around the d.c. area. philly, 13.5. new york city, 11.5 and big winner in cape cod and the island, just to the south of the boston area, 18 inches of snow. take a look at this. airports having problems. winds gusting 20 to 30 miles per hour. the snow on the ground still blowing around causing a little bit of reduced visibility and certainly problems for the planes trying to take off. >> if you told us a couple of days we would have got this, people would have said, no, that's not happening. >> myself included. >> everybody. >> we didn't see the storm coming as much of a strong storm as it was a few days out on this one. definitely caused problems. the cold air isn't going to go
12:07 pm
anywhere for a while. take a look at the current windchills. you were showing those. minus 34 in fargo. take a look at the next seven days around the chicago area. these are the morning low temperatures, shep. average around 16. saturday above that. take a look at this. out for a week and seeing temperatures overnight around 0 or below 0 and we are going to continue to see clippers move through and with each successive one, the colder air back in and keeps things cold. one last map. the pink is temperatures below 0. see the blue. that's below 32. freezing. now put it in motion over about the next ten days. the pink keeps on getting down here to the northern plains and great lakes. super bowl sunday, we have the pink. 0s across the northern plains and the freezing across the northeast. temps below 0 or freezing for most people for 10 to 11 days.
12:08 pm
>> february and late january. thank you. massive snowstorm is causing serious problems at the nation's airports. the storm just yesterday canceled thousands and delayed and cancelations so much. take a look at the wall here. this image of twitter shows a plane covered in snow. they have to be deiced. that takes time. sometimes more than once. this is newark liberty in jersey last night. the guy that posted the photo said it arrived in honolulu. shocking for the plane. welcome back. the snow and ice today have grounded more than 1,700 flights. most along the east coast and delays and cancelations here can have a ripple effect backing up flights across the country. this map from a flight over here, one, two, three, four. that's potrage. you have flight delays? >> yeah. this is cool. this is flight aware causes the misery map. the number of flights and the percentage of flight that is are canceled in cities across the country and if you click on new york city here, the red is
12:09 pm
percentage that are canceled or delayed and shows you the route that is are having the most problems. you can see the line here, the route to atlanta is red. >> route to atlanta should always be red. always a disaster getting to and from atlanta. go on. >> d.c. also -- >> imagine. atlanta again. do we see a pattern? anyone else? >> yeah. chicago here. >> they can get to chicago from atlanta all right. not that you want to. boston? >> yeah. this is boston. >> when's going on there? no problems getting atlanta. if you're in chicago or boss phenomenon, you can get to atlanta. that's a cool map. can anybody access that? >> yeah, yeah, yeah. flightaware.com. or google flight aware and misery map. >> a fourth of all flights. >> a lot of problems. >> understandable. all right. rich from fox but networks just outside d.c. how long are the delays there, rich? >> reporter: well, shep, anywhere from about an hour into
12:10 pm
canceled. there are delays here and the folks say it's not our fault waiting for planes from elsewhere and experiencing ground delays not able to go to other places and other parts and airports of the country. dca, reagan national airport, flightaware saying dulles at 18 and baltimore at 19 cancelations for the day. that compares to yesterday here at national where we had 176 cancelations and dulles 115 and bwi 106. one of the delays here, though, they have to deice the planes because it's colder than freezing here like much of the northeast, shep. >> what are passengers telling you, rich? >> reporter: well, you know, for those who are delayed, it is as you noticed a third, they're handling it pretty well. >> i was delayed i guess about 13 hours and i had gotten an e-mail from the airline saying that the flight was canceled. >> supposed to leave at 12:10
12:11 pm
and now 1:30 and that's who knows how long it will be? >> supposed to travel yesterday. at 5:00 in the morning. i have to go today. >> reporter: so getting back to normal in the national capital. the government is back open with a two-hour delay. back to you. >> all right. rich edson, thanks a lot. the weather may be cold but not acid snow as far as we know. forecasters in south korea say the stuff's been falling on the country. scientists say acid snow is in essence acid rain that's frozen. hello. those forecasters call it a mixture of snow and yellow dust. they're warning folks to use umbrellas to protect themselves outside. as for the lungs, that's another matter. celebrities and witnesses say they saw a small airport crash in aspen, colorado. now the first video of the deadly crash as it happened and that's next.

newly released video shows the moment a small jet crashed in aspen this morning. this month, i should say. cameras from five different angles appear to show it hitting the runway, going back in the air and coming down nose first before bursting into flames. a person died in the crash. two others hurt. there's word this was the pilot's second attempt at landing after he reported high winds in the first one. the reason that we all took note of this, frankly, is a number of
12:15 pm
celebrities say they were near the airport. the singer leann rimes said she saw it happen. do investigators know what caused this? >> reporter: not yet. we talked to an official today who said it could be about a year until they issue a final report. but you do get a better idea of what they are working with when you see what the cameras captured on aairport and impact. ntsb investigators have five vantage points from the cameras at the ramp in aspen. what you can't see is how bad the wind was. a preliminary report found a tail wind of at least 21 miles per hour with gusts up to 28 miles per hour. and the aspen airport at aality tuld of 7,890 feet is no tour yoesly difficult for landing and taking off for pilots. here's an expert. >> by the way, this accident could have happened at almost
12:16 pm
any airport. forget the aspen stuff. reality is, if they landed in a tail wind like that at laguardia airport, they would have bought the terminal. that's a pilot issue. >> reporter: the preliminary report lists weather as a role. >> how did the two survivors make out? >> well, there were three people on board and all three actually were pilots. one died on scene and when you look at that crash video and the aftermath, it really is remarkable that anybody survived this at all. one man who went to the hospital in critical condition remains hospitalized right now. but the third was released just last week. officials say they had left southern mexico and made a stopover in phoenix and headed to aspen to pick up family and friends. and so we can expect an official cause of this crash about a year from now. shep? >> thank you. want a billion dollars? fill out a perfect march madness bracket. nobody's ever done that as far as we know.

fox news can confirm the crack-smoking mayor of toronto is indeed the gift that keeps on giving. i watched this video about 1:00, 1:30 yesterday afternoon and laughed and cried and all kinds of things. he was at a fast-food restaurant, slurring and using a
12:33 pm
weird accent. here's a little bit. >> tell us about -- >> you know, he's hiding here. i'm hiding here. oh [ bleep ]. you know how much money i got? money, money, money. >> buddy. he was talking about the city following him around and costing the money to do so. it's worth googling. we didn't show it all. somebody reportedly recorded it on monday night and hit yesterday afternoon. and mayor ford said he was drinking a little bit and the accent, he said that's how he speaks with his friends. back in november, mayor ford admitted smoking crack in a drunken stupor and said he stopped drinking and vowed the public would never see him in a drunk video. apparently the public wasn't watching. the buddies recorded this for
12:34 pm
him, huh? >> reporter: yeah. a minute long, shep, and most of it is incoherent but goes after the chief of police in toronto calling him obscenities in english and jamaican-english. as for that pledge he made not to drink anymore, the sobriety pledge, now the mayor says, look, on his own time he can do exactly what he wants. listen to it. >> i was with some friends and what i do in my personal life with my personal friends is up to me. >> you said -- >> it has nothing to do with you guys. it's my own time, my friend and it has -- okay, guys. no, no, no. >> excuse me. >> no, no, no. no, no, no, no. >> reporter: in case you didn't hear it, no, he wasn't driving. no, he wasn't doing drugs. during the tape and that fast-food restaurant, a guy comes up saying he's the best mayor in the world. all rob ford would say is he's the best mayor toronto has ever had. >> what do they say about him or
12:35 pm
call themselves? >> reporter: you know, look, he is not the most popular mayor ever but he is making a comeback. take a look at the poll back in december. rob ford's approval rating at 42%. but you look just a month ahead. now the approval rating's at 47%. the handling of the ice storm likely helped the numbers. if the election is held today, the mayor would easily win re-election and when he filed for re-election a couple of weeks ago he said people are tired of this whole drug scandal apparently and not the case because this story today is number one. it's trending very highly all over tropt and a lot of canada. people apparently want to hear about the exploits, shep. >> until the end. it's coming. trace gallagher, thank you very much. all good things come to an end. fox news confirmed that the u.s. military leaders presented the white house with a new plan. a new plan to keep just 10,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan after this year. that's according to a senior
12:36 pm
u.s. official. the "wall street journal" is reporting that the goal, again, we have had lots of goals in afghanistan, here's the new one. the goal is to eventually get the number of troops down to zero by the time president obama leaves office. 43,000 united states troops were skill in afghanistan as of last month and the draw down continues. under this proposal, after this year, that number would drop by 33,000. the defense department reports more than 2,300 u.s. troops have died since the war began in 2001. lea gabrielle flew combat missions in afghanistan and i wonder how the news is sitting. >> rep, u.s. officials confirmed to fox news that the top general in afghanistan presented this proposal to the white house last week. now, according to the "the wall street journal" the pentagon is essentially requesting an all or nothing approach meaning to keep the full 10,000 troops in afghanistan to support the bases
12:37 pm
and the mission otherwise they recommend pulling out entirely. >> strategic significance of this is very self evident. the stability of afghanistan, the stability of the region is put at risk by the fact that the taliban and the al qaeda will have a free hand with the united states gone. >> that was retired general jack keen telling me that 10,000 is a small number to be able to ensure continued stability in afghanistan, shep. >> thankfully, there's a balance here. the generals don't make the decisions. there's more that goes into it. >> that's true. at this point, afghanistan's president has not signed a bilateral security agreement to allow any troops to stay in afghanistan past 2014. the white house saying unless that happens soon, they'll plan to withdraw. >> that's not the future we're seeking. it is not the policy we think is best and we don't believe it's in afghanistan's best interest. but the further it slips into 2014, the more likely such an
12:38 pm
outcome. >> white house officials say that they'll also be weighing inputts from the intelligence community, diplomats and other experts when making the decision, shep. >> all right. thanks very much. the bloody protests across ukraine killed at least three people today as the fighting seems to get worse by the minute. live pictures now from ukraine's capital. it is going on 11:00 in the evening there but the explosive demonstrations are still going on. we have been watching as the demonstrators set enormous fires. riot cops trying to hold back the crowds. protesters tore down barricades. the fighting boils down to this. a battle of east and west and which culture ukranians want for their future. the crowds demonstrate the government aligning with russia. the people want an ally with europe, in europe. pictures show riot police shooting at protesters who tore down the barricades. officials say two people died from gunshots although ukraine's
